Putting It All 

The life of a college student is like a kaleidoscope — it is constantly 
changing. Our education is made up of so much more than classes; it 
is being a part of the whole puzzle of Samford University and of the 
world. We are patiently, or in some cases impatiently, learning, 
growing and reaching out to others in an attempt to make the puzzle 
of our lives complete. 

This puzzle not only includes 
ourselves, but all the other peo- 
ple and activities that fit into our 
daily lives — sororities, fraterni- 
ties, independents, dorm mates, 
commuters, teachers, administra- 
tors, parents and friends. Our col- 
lege lives move so fast we must 
capture each experience and ap- 
ply it as a section of the puzzle. 
Different experiences affect each 
student's life in a different way. 
As freshmen we leave our homes 
and families and the secure feel- 
ing that existed there to bring the 
few pieces of our life's puzzle and 
make them fit into the surround- 
ing frame of life as a college stu- 
dent. As seniors we leave our 
friends and acquaintances to 
make our new puzzle fit in an 
even larger frame of life in the 

Eventually the parts shift 
to fill a new puzzle. Future 
jobs, careers, and families 
begin occupying empty 
spaces. Yet, even though 
our lives long for stability 
and order we are constantly 
changing pieces. 


In order to be a well-rounded 
person, it's very important to 
do more than just study all the 
time. Extracurricular activities 
enable you to meet people and 
to become involved with orga- 
nizations that will strengthen 
you physically, mentally and 
spiritually. You will also learn 
more about others and about 
yourself through these activi-

Samford has instilled in me the 
essential belief that one must have 
patience because all things are diffi- 
cult before they become easy.

Doing things close to nature 
brings me close to God.

My freshman year consisted of 
many "firsts" for Samford and 
for me. The University had the 
return of football after 11 years 
and I experienced being on my 
own for the first time. 

— Lori Sessions 




One of the biggest 
changes taking place at 
SU this year was the re- 
vival of ecstatic school 
spirit. The vivid colors 
and sounds of cheer- 
leaders and the SU 
Band contributed to the 
spirit provided by the 
addition of the Samford 
Bulldog football team.

Samford's new international study program 

Samford University introduces students to the 
world . . . the world of ideas . . . the world of books 
. . . the world of people . . . the world of need. 

The university is committed to seeing and serv- 
ing a world beyond its campus. 

Samford's new International Study Centre in 
London, England, enables the University's students 
to grow in global awareness, to 
see the diversity of human ex- 
perience, to prepare for the 
world as it will be. 

Samford University ... a 
truly distinctive part of this ex- 
citing world. 

The International Study pro- 
gram in London allows about 
25 students and faculty to 
spend each semester living and 
studying in England, earning 
normal progress toward a Sam- 
ford degree, while enjoying 
travel and intercultural exper- 
iences that cannot be obtained in the classroom. 

The trip includes two major excursions into the 
British countryside and several cultural opportuni- 
ties within London. One student has said, "it was 

the best three months of my life." The students 
who go on the excursion begin to feel that they are 
living in London — not just visiting an unfamiliar 
environment. The English are known to be very 
polite and hospitable. They even go out of their 
way to show some students to their destiny. 
The vast sense of culture and entertainment can 
easily overwhelm the visiting stu- 
dent. The cultural experiences in- 
clude numerous ballets, sympho- 
nies, operas, and plays — all at an 
inexpensive price. The students 
receive a food allowance with 
which they can try a variety of 
foods characteristic of that sec- 
tion of the country. Indian, Thai- 
land, Italian and French are just 
some of the different types. 

The students also meet and 
learn about the many different 
kinds of people, from punk 
rockers to men in bowler hats. 
But as one student has expressed, they all have the 
ability to laugh; the ability that lets us share a 
common ground. 


This is a marvelous oppor- 
tunity that will enrich your 
University experience be- 
yond measure. This is a gold- 
en opportunity.

The program allows the 
student to get class credit for 
several different courses. 
Also, about twice a week, 
professional British people 
come to speak to the stu- 
dents about England. These 
topics include the British 
monarchy, the Parliament, 
the economy, the education, 
and the journalism of Lon- 
don. The pupils also enjoy 
three day weekends where 
they are free to explore, 
learn, and get to know each 
other and the neighboring 
part of the world we live in. 2

Greek Week is a long-standing tradi- 
tion on Samford's campus. As spring 
blossoms and finals draw near, Greeks 
begin preparing for the variety of events 
that make up Greek Week. This year's 
activities were held April 15-19 and 
started off Monday with a Greek movie. 
S-Day was held on Tuesday as Greeks 
and Independents competed in Intramu- 
ral events. Wednesday brought the 
Greek chapel service and ice cream so- 
cial. The Greek God and Goddess pag- 
eant was held Thursday night. Phi Mu, 

Janice Thompson, was crowned 1985 
Greek Goddess and Pi Kapp, Tim Miller 
was chosen by the student body to be 
the 1985 Greek God. Friday brought the 
traditional greek picture taking session 
that included all the Greeks wearing 
their jerseys in a group picture, and the 
week was capped off with a Greek band 
party featuring the sounds of "Eli." Pan- 
hellenic and the Intra-Fraternity Council 
did a fantastic job of planning and pre- 
paring this spring's events. It was a suc- 
cessful week for all involved.

Gorgeous Gals in glittering 
gowns characterized the 1985 
Greek God and Goddess pageant. 
Girls from each sorority compet- 
ed for the title of Greek Goddess 
and the chance to pose with 1985 
Greek God, Tim Miller. The com- 
petition included an evening 
gown and sportswear parade, but 
the contestants were judged pri- 
marily on their scholarship and 
leadership abilities. 

After careful deliberation, Ja- 
nice Thompson was announced 
1985 Greek Goddess. Laura Ed- 
wards was first runner-up and 
winner of the scholarship award. 
Beverly Jones was second runner- 
up and Traci Armstrong was 
third-runner-up, winning the lead- 
ership award. Jan Mulvany was 
fourth runner-up. The pageant 
was held during Greek Week in 
the Leslie S. Wright auditorium. 
It was a fitting climax to Greek 
Week activities.

The 1984/1985 school year saw growth for Samford's Community 
radio, WVSU. In its first full academic year with expanded power the 
station provided practical experience for over 40 students from all 
areas of study. New programs were added to highlight "Samford at 
its best," including "London Calling," a weekly update on the activi- 
ties of the new London Studies Program. Jennifer Corts and Chuck 
Smith provided commentary via transatlantic phone lines for the 
autumn show. Samford Bulldog Football was a center of attention in 
the fall, and 91.1 FM aired reports from the field. A live remote 
broadcast "Beach Party" in the cafeteria helped promote the basket- 
ball team's season opener. 

A highly successful Big Band party, "Moonlight Serenade" gave 
the University family as well as Shades Valley residents a chance to 

experience a night of Swing with Bir- 
mingham's "The Stardusters." The 
February event certainly was unique 
and many Samford students discov- 
ered the Jitterbug and Lindy for the 
first time. 

Student Activities Council 

The main purpose of the Student Activities Council is to provide 
worthwhile activities for the students of Samford University. Mem- 
bers are selected on a voluntary basis. Committees for the school year 
are formed at the beginning of the fall semester. The SAC sponsors 
various activities throughout the school year. Some activities include 
the Welcome Back Party, College Bowl, Step Sing, S-Day, Outdoor 
Recreation, Homecoming, Campus Movies, Lectures and Concerts, 


Band Parties and Residence Hall Programming. SAC works with 
Campus Ministries on such activities as Fall Retreat, Hanging of the 
Green and Christian Emphasis Week. 

This year's vice-president for Student Activities is Jane Anne 
Scates. Anyone interested in joining the SAC should contact the 
Student Association Vice President for Student Activities. The SAC 
Office is Room 111 in Beeson Student Center.

Football returns, A Basketball 
coach departs. A new emphasis 
on women's sports. 

The success of an athletic program 
depends not on individual perfor- 
mances, but on the unending devotion 
of the individual to the team. Whether 

the athletes were on the football field, 
the track, on one side of a volleyball or 
tennis net, the basketball court, or the 
baseball field, the team spirit was 
there. In victory and defeat the athletes 
of our university exemplified the type 
of student which brings pride to our 
school in their every endeavor. 

The 1984 team brought football back to Samford

a new season 

"Play it again, Samford" was 
the battle cry for the year. Foot- 
ball returned to Samford this fall 
for the first time in eleven years. 
Although the record was not im- 
pressive, the students more than 
made up for the losses with their 
support to the end. The Season 
finale was a win on the last game 
of the season over the University 
of the South (Sewanee.) Under 
the direction of Quarterback 
Tommy Bledsoe the Bulldog's 
pulled out a 38-33 win. This year 
was a successful year in every 
way in the eyes of the coaches, 
administration, and student body. 
The future will hold many victo- 
ries for the Bulldogs. But for now 
. . . "Play it Again . . . Samford." 

"We worked hard to im- 
prove our game . . . and I 
think we did. We're really 
looking forward to next 
year." Tommy Bledsoe

High Hopes On The Horizon 

The girl's tennis team, in their

tential of becoming a force to 
contend with in the realm of in- 
tercollegiate tennis. The second 
of the two new girls athletic 
teams at Samford, the tennis 
team practiced many long and 
hard hours. The girls had many 
tough matches against teams 
much more experienced and 
consistently proved themselves 
to be winners. The success of 
their first season promises to 
bring many winning years to the 
team in the future. This year's 
team members were: Lisa Brad-

There were many bright mo-

losses of the 1984-85 Men's Ten- 
nis Team. The team practiced 
many hot and strenuous hours 
that all paid off once they were 
on the court against opponents 
of other schools. Under the di- 
rection of Coach Leslie C. Long- 
shore, Jr., the high potential of 
the team shined through in every 
set played.

and dedicated; persevering to 
the end like the bulldogs they 
are. Under the leadership of 
Coach John Haywood, Samford 
is looking forward to the future 
and years of success.

Who's Who 

Wendy Holt graduated from Samford with 
a major in Paralegal Studies with a concen- 
tration in Sociology and Law Enforcement. 
After graduation she hoped to be placed in a 
law firm in a paralegal profession. During her 
years at Samford, she was involved in SGA 
and Samford Association of Legal Assistants, 
a sister of Zeta Tau Alpha, and a little sister 
to Sigma Nu fraternity. She enjoyed the 
small, personal classes and the pleasant at- 
mosphere which Samford offered. She felt 
that the education she received in Paralegal 
Studies has adequately prepared her for 
work in the legal profession. 

John Floyd graduated from Samford with 
a degree in Public Administration and hopes 
to obtain a J.D., and a M.B.A.. and work in a 
law firm, or an Investment Banking Firm. In 
his spare time he enjoys playing racquetball, 
basketball and reading. John was a member 
of the Sigma Nu fraternity, Pi Gamma Mu, 
Phi Alpha Theta, Omicron Delta Kappa, and 
College Republicans. He held numerous of- 
fices including treasurer of Sigma Nu, trea- 
surer of SGA, Junior Class President, and 
Senator of SGA. He feels that through extra- 
curricular activities, one can become aware 
of unknown talents and usefulnesses. He 
feels that religion helps to make a better stu- 
dent because through the person of Jesus 
Christ, one has access to the deep inner 
truths about life and destiny. 

Elizabeth Cole has a major in Physical Edu- 
cation and Mathematics along with a teach- 
ing certificate. She plans to use her degrees 
to teach several math and P.E. classes along 
with coaching a team in either a Junior High 
or High School in Alabama. During her years 
at Samford, she received the Student Teach- 
er Award from Kappa Delta Epsilon and was 
also placed on the Outstanding Female Phys- 
ical Education Major Dean's list. She was also 
co-captain and trainer of Samford's first 
Women's Volleyball Team, the secretary and 
president of the Physical Education Majors 
Club, the athletic trainer for Samford's Base- 
ball Team, and a member of Kappa Delta 
Epsilon. She felt that extracurricular activi- 
ties helped form a more rounded student. 


Who's Who con't 


David Jamieson graduated from Samford 
with a degree in Accounting and Computer 
Science. He hopes to begin his career with a 
job in the auditing department of Arthur 
Young and Company. During his years at 
Samford he was president of both Phi Mu 
Alpha Sinfonia and BSU Choir. He was also a 
member of Phi Kappa Phi, Omicron Delta 
Kappa, Phi Eta Sigma, Pi Mu Epsilon, Home- 
coming escort and Honor Scholarship. He 
feels that accepting the responsibilities of 
leadership in different organizations has 
taught him things that will last long past 
graduation. David feels that being a christian 
motivates one to reach his full potential, 
through the power of Christ in all areas. 

Elizabeth Futral has a Bachelor of Music in 
voice and plans to continue her vocal training 
at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music in 
the Graduate Program. She was the presi- 
dent of Delta Omicron, vice-president of the 
University Chorale, and a member of the 
Samford Opera Workshop and the Minnie- 
singers. She was the 1984 Homecoming 
Queen, the first runner-up in the 1985 Miss 
Entre Nous pageant, and a member of Omi- 
cron Delta Kappa, Hypatia, and Phi Kappa 
Phi. She enjoys swimming, sewing, playing 
the piano, playing tennis, and jogging. She 
feels that extracurricular activities offer op- 
portunities in learning to work with people. 
She has enjoyed the ratio of students to facul- 
ty at Samford because it offers many more 
opportunities which would otherwise not be 

Karen Jones graduated from Samford with 
a degree in Computer Science and has a job 
waiting in Huntsville at Intergraph Corpora- 
tion. She was the president of the Math Club, 
vice-president of Pi Mu Epsilon, a member of 
Alpha Lambda Delta and Phi Kappa Phi. She 
enjoys reading and needlepoint and she feels 
that her strong points fall in her leadership 
capabilities and organizational skills. Al- 
though she has enjoyed the concerned facul- 
ty and the small size of Samford, she feels 
that the school has become too concerned 
with its image, as compared with other aca- 
demic institutions. She feels that studying is 
the essense of college, that one should study 
as much as it takes to become the best stu- 
dent one can be.

crowd. She has enjoyed the small number in 
each classroom allowing more personal con- 
tact with the professors. Krista depends on 
her Christianity for support, love and pa-

Clayton Campbell graduated from Sam-

plans of eventually teaching voice. He had 
been nominated and inducted into the Na- 
tional Dean's List, Omicron Delta Kappa, 
and Phi Kappa Phi. He was the president of 
A Cappella Choir, a big brother in Delta Omi- 
cron, and the kicking specialist of the Sam- 
ford Bulldog Football Team. Clayton feels 
that extracurricular activities can enhance 
the educational process and provide whole- 
some avenues of outlet but that too many 
people "major in the minors" of college life. 
He feels that Christianity, Christ-likeness, 
and not "religion" help to make a better stu-

fects every area of one's life.

extracurricular activities help one feel in-

break to studying. Pamela feels that religion 
helps make a better student because it pro- 
vides guidance and direction to a very confus-

Samford Homecoming was charged with excitement as 
students gathered for the first football Homecoming in elev- 
en years. Alumni, faculty, students, and members of the 
1973 Samford football team turned out in full force to 
witness the festivities. 

The celebration began with a week-long series of events, 
including a side-walk painting contest, Red day, and a 
Homecoming Band Party. The Friday before Saturday's 
game a pep rally was held in the cafeteria. The cheerleaders 
and the band performed, and sorority and fraternity pledges 
presented skits. The associates of Lambda Chi Alpha, with 
a take-off on Bear Bryant, won the skit competition. The 
night's activities were capped by an announcement from 
Alpha Phi Omega that Samford now has its own live mas- 
cot — a bulldog named SU. 

Saturday's game began with the release of blue and red 
balloons. The band performed at half-time, and Suzanne 
Stigler was crowned 1984 Queen. Although the score was 
not all we hoped for, our Bulldogs fought hard against the 
Hurricanes. Samford can be very proud of its 1984 Home-

money raised goes to sum-

money. One of the most 
popular money makers 
was a mud wrestling com-

was also made by the sell-

slave auction, perfor- 
mances by ACT 8, a base- 
ball throw, computer dat- 
ing service, balloon burst, 
car smash, and a dunking 
machine. Booths were also 
set up by area churches

a day for all amateur ath-

track, field, and swimming 
competition. Sororities, 
fraternities, the M.A.'s, 
and the classes participate 
in strenuous tests of skill, 
including the mattress 
race, an ice-cream eating 
contest, and traditional fa- 
vorites such as the 440 re- 
lay, 50 and 20 yard dashes, 
the mile run, the softball 

throw, and the broad jump.

Making A Name For Himself 

In continuing "the quest for excellence," Dr. Thomas E. Corts was truly making a name for 
himself. The seventeenth president added and improved many areas of our 143-year-old Baptist 

President Corts was born in Terre Haute, Indiana. He is a graduate of Georgetown College with a 
doctorate from Indiana University. Before coming to Samford, Dr. Corts presided over Wingate 
College of North Carolina. 

Referring to the improvements, Corts has already taken many steps of action. These include 
beginning the international semester abroad, expanding our library's Learning Resources Center 
with a computer lab, and adding the Southern Library 
Network for computerized cataloguing. Dr. Corts also 
rendered Saga — a new food services vendor and the 
remodeling of Lena Vail Davis Dorm lounge. 

Although many other adjustments have been made, 
Corts' biggest changes came in Samford's Athletic 
Department. He introduced the first Women's Intercol- 
legiate Volleyball 
and Tennis teams 
along with added 
ing rooms and 
equipment to Sei- 
bert Gym. Con- 
struction was start- 
ed on a new 
intramural field 
with the addition of 
a full-time intramu- 
ral director. 

Of course, the 
most significant ad- 
dition was the re- 
turn of football and 
the excitement and 
enthusiasm it 
brought. Even a 
new Marching Band 

joined the crowds in cheers and performed several half- 
time shows for the fans' entertainment. 

It is clear that with all these improvements and many 
more on the agenda for future years, President Thomas 
Corts is making a very good name for himself.
